Die Mauer – Yadegar Asisis Panorama am Checkpoint Charlie
Welcome to the 18th Fotomarathon in Berlin!
You missed the registration deadline. No problem! We all live busy lives -but this should not be a problem. Just come to the start location next Saturday 16.06 at 10.00 and we take it from there. Where: Die Mauer, Asisi Panorama, Friedrichstraße 205, (am Checkpoint Charlie), 10117 Berlin The ticket costs EUR 35 and can be paid in cash or EC-Card. We look forward to seeing you next Saturday!
This year the Fotomarathon takes place on Saturday 16. June 2018. Fotomarathon Berlin is turning 20 years old and we have many reasons to celebrate.
In addition to posing a photographic challenge, the Fotomarathon invites you to see the city with a different perspective. You can create your own photo sets in the city: passers by can be your models, your friends can be your assistants and the city can be your own 3D background. We work hard to find off-the-beaten-path or otherwise interesting locations to discover. We tell you a bit more in each theme sheet, where you find your topics, with interesting facts and a bit of history. This makes the 12 hour journey a trip to the unknown not only for visitors and Berliners alike.
You can participate in the 18th Fotomarathon as follows:
This year the Fotomarathon in Berlin takes place on Saturday, June 16th at 11.00 hours . The starting point will be announced via Email to all registered participants.

How does a 12h Fotomarathon work?
10.00 am: The Fotomarathon team is at the location, and participants can collect their start numbers and additional information.
11.00 am: We are ready to go! Participants get their start number, the first four topics, and instructions to go to the next meeting point.
15.00 and 19.00 hours: At two additional locations in Berlin, participants will get new topics and clues to the next location.
23.00 hours: After 12 hours of Fotomarathon, the digital pictures will be downloaded from the participants´camera by the Fotomarathon team. Analogue photographers taking part in the 12 hour Fotomarathon hand in their photo rolls.
Analogue photographers are welcome!
This year, up to 30 analogue photographers can also take their cameras out for a spin –including middle format cameras.
Due to the way in which the photos are printed for the exhibition, you can only shoot in small format (35mm) or middle format film. Please remember to bring your own negative film it can be either colour or black and white. At the end of the Fotomarathon (23.00 hours), we collect the film rolls to send them to the lab.
NOTE: Unfortunately we cannot accept slide films or small film (110mm) because of the way the photos will be developed and printed for the exhibition.
Back by popular demand, we will have a mobile photography category in 2018. The same rules apply -no post processing, maintaining the sequence, etc. IMPORTANT: Participants must bring their own USB connecting cable, and an SD Memory Card. We will transfer the 12 photos for the Fotomarathon to the SD CArd and use the SD Card to have them processed using our special download software, so they get renamed and adapted for the exhibition.
Your photo series and the exhibition
A few weeks after the Fotomarathon, all photos from all participants will be presented at a weekend long Exhibition. Entry is free for registered participants. Visitors pay a symbolic entrance fee. The awards ceremony takes place on Saturday at 18.00 hours.
The exhibition will take place a few weeks later. Date and place will be announced later. Please visit the Exhibition page for more information.
At the end of the Exhibition, on Sunday after 18.00, participants can come to collect their photo series and take it home. You need to bring your Fotomarathon number with you, otherwise you will not be able to collect your series. If you cannot pick it up, you can order to have it delivered to you. Due to organisational reasons, this order is only possible during the registration process. In addition to your ticket for the Fotomarathon, just choose another ticket to order your series. The cost of shipping and handling depends on whether the mail goes to a German or to an European address. Please consider this during your registration. We cannot take orders for deliveries after you have registered.
